Do you regret that you were born?

My question has nothing to do with suicide for those who can not read in between the line's. We didn't have a choice in the matter to be here. Life can be beautiful, yet a bit overwhelming and everyone experiences the up's and downs. But if you had the option to go back and decide yourself would you want to go through it all again or be non existent? And nope you can't opt for a different life, but the same exact one you have today!

  • Yes, I'd opt for an exit.

  • I think life is a blessing and I wouldn't trade it for anything. I could be going through the worst time in my life and I would still keep my head up and want to be here.

  • To be? Or NOT To Be? That is the question.

    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And, by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep- No more-and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to-'tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep-To sleep, perchance to dream. Aye, there's the rub!
    For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause. There's the respect
    That makes calamity of so long life. For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, Th' oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay, The insolence of office, and the spurns
    That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscovered country from whose born No traveler returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make cowards of us all, And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pitch and moment, With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action.

    To exist or Not to exist that is the question. If I had knew then how my life would have played out and who my parents were going to be then I would have to choose Non-Existence. I very much would RATHER be able to CHOOSE HOW I EXIST AND WHAT I EXIST AS, as in WHAT MATTER I'M CONSISTING OF (rather be and consist something else other than Blood, Flesh, and Bone). If i get to be something that is highly intelligent, self-sustaining, completely independent, with little to no vulnerabilities UNLIKE how all Organic Life that is made out of and consists of highly vulnerable and temporary physical forms made out of Blood, Flesh, Bone and LIMITED SEVERELY by Genetics, DISTRACTED SEVERELY by Desire, then I would have no problem with my existence. Ideally I would rather have been an intelligent being that is completely without any Pain, Suffering and incapable of of Ever Dying and Disappointments, I'd therefore would be an Extraterrestrial of some kind if I was ever able to pick and choose how I should and would exist in the very first place, otherwise I rather have never existed.

  • I don't think life is painfully difficult but I don't think it's that fulfilling or enjoyable either. I think I would have preferred to not exist.

  • There is no going back.. We are all dealt the hand that was given to us. I believe that the overwhelming times and the ups and downs also add to the beauty of life itself :) We are privileged to not only be here, but also to be able to voice our concerns, opinions, and feelings. I've been through the wringer most of my time here, like you wouldn't believe, but still consider myself fortunate.

      Ehhh I mean I wouldn't regret being born over that, but who am I to judge? If that was the case it's not like it was your fault you were the product of such an unfortunate event.

  • Yes. I really wish my mother hadn't had me. I have social anxiety so it's hard for me to interact with people. Although I do try and for a few years I was actually okay, but with social anxiety you can have a relapse and go back to your old ways. Currently I am in that position because of something that happened in March.

    With social anxiety people judge you for being too quiet or they think you're a snob. People get frustrated with me because of it. I've been called a loser because of it. My sister told me I'm am embarrassment because of it.

    I'm also ugly. I look like a man instead of a woman. So people bother me about that all the time. I've never had a relationship and likely never will. One guy once told me he wouldn't be able to handle waking up to my face everyday.

    I just feel like I wasn't meant to be born. I'm ugly and I don't have a personality to make up for it. Some people can have outstanding personalities to make up for their physical flaws. I've been told I'm nice but being nice only gets you so far in life. People tend to hate nice people anyway. They think they're fake.

    The only things I have going for me is that I am a hard worker and I don't quit. I'm doing everything I can to build myself a nest egg. I put in hours of overtime. My hard working and ambition is probably the only two good things about me. When I want something, I won't quit until I get it.

    I would never kill myself (I don't feel I have a reason to anyway, even if I shouldn't be alive) because my dad killed himself when I was six. I would never put my mother and sister through that because it would be cruel.

    I basically just try to fulfill my life without having people in it.
